NEET UG 2018: The Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) has denied changes in the NEET UG 2018 syllabus. There were speculations that state curriculum might be included in the syllabus. The notice issued by the CBSE states, “The syllabus of NEET (UG) 2018 will be exactly same as it was for NEET (UG) 2017. There is no change in the syllabus of NEET (UG) 2018”. The NEET 2018 notification is expected to be released anytime soon.

In 2017, the exam was conducted on Sunday, May 7 and therefore, this year too, NEET is likely to be held in the first week of May. The exam is held for admission in MBBS seats in medical colleges across India. Only AIIMS and JIPMER conducts their own exam. NEET was made mandatory from 2016. The exam will be conducted in Hindi, English, Urdu, Gujarati, Marathi, Oriya, Bengali, Assamese, Telugu, Tamil and Kannada.
